Two pieces of news provide a flicker of hope amid the doom and gloom.
“Careers for Life” to Create Real Opportunities in RMI for Veterans and Spouses
AUSTIN, TX, November 20, 2012 – The National Alliance’s Center for Career Advancement (CCA) has just announced the launch of its “Careers for Life” Initiative. This exciting initiative focuses on recruiting soldiers, veterans and their spouses to pursue civilian careers in the Risk Management and Insurance (RMI) Industry. The goal of the initiative is to prepare these men and women to be “career-ready” upon their departure from the military by completing The Alliance's premiere education, training and mentoring programs.
The National Alliance “Careers for Life” Initiative is coordinating efforts with The Florida State University Dr. William T. Hold/The National Alliance Program in Risk Management & Insurance and the U.S. Army’s, Office of the Chief of Staff, Soldier for Life Office to connect transitioning Soldiers and their spouses to education resources to hone their skills and train them for new lifetime careers in the RMI Industry.
“The Careers for Life Initiative is an exciting program for The Alliance, FSU, and our country,” said Dr. William T. Hold, President and co-founder of The National Alliance and one of the “Top 25 Living Legends of Insurance.” “The men and women that have served in our military are the ‘cream of the crop’ and we want these leaders working in the RMI industry and the Careers for Life Initiative will get this accomplished.”
Representatives from the Soldier for Life Office stated that “the outpouring of support from the private sector for our Soldiers is overwhelming. Just as the U.S. Army makes Soldiers stronger and career ready by instilling Army Values and the Warrior Ethos, the Center for Career Advancement’s (CCA) Careers for Life Initiative recognizes the capability and intrinsic value that Veterans can bring to an organization. This is just another strong example of supporting our Soldiers by identifying their strengths and the skills they bring to the civilian sector.”
